The purpose of Educational Access Programs (EAP) is to enhance the quality of the educational experience for minority students in particular, and all students in general, through programs, services, advocacy, and referral to appropriate resources. EAP is actively involved in the enrollment development functions of the University with respect to recruitment and retention of minority students.
